On a warm summer Saturday nearer towards the end of noon. Someone knocked on my door. It was as if a comet fell from the sky when I saw the package and it widen my eye. She must have been an angel sent from above heaven.

And yes, this may sound cliché but I’m too joyous on this day where my walls were all torn down.  The point is, my Grandma just passed away last week. She was my stronghold, my adviser, my cheer leader my EVERYTHING. I love her more than I could ever imagine. She’s been one of my inspirations… one of the reasons why I strive to survive-I dreamt to give her a better life. I want her to live like a real queen. And because of her demise, the whole truth of the world for me has just been changed. Like my vision has suddenly changed. So I am broken. I am smiling but my heart is bleeding.

 I reminded myself  since eight that losing  someone you love the most doesn’t get easier, I  should only learn to accept and live without them. I convinced myself that times like this, it’s hard to be strong especially if you lost someone dear to you, but you must continue to live to make them even more proud as they watch over you.

Then, last night I prayed to God that tomorrow, I will create a new perspective in life for those dear to me that are still alive, everything will be alright, and that I will wake up with warm delight. I guess, my instinct was right!  As what I’ve mentioned earlier, someone just sent her love and care, she truly is a rare jewel. I tell you, it’s true! Good things do come when you least expect it! And happiness can be found, even in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light.

Endless thanks to my grade 1 teacher, my aunt, my friend, my mentor for this wonderful presents!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Curves


DSCN1699[1]

I’ve been through a lot of curves in life. I dealt with fear, with regret, with loathing and shame, and hate… I can bend with anything but not LOVE! For, LOVE is the sun, burning down on me and I have spent too long in the cold, dark cave of loneliness.

I am passionate about LOVE. I understand the reality of God’s gift which is to love and be loved but then again some people left me  broken. So, I trust in His spiritual gifts in my life. I trust solely in His divine power.

And I also admit that I am FRAIL. Often, I am terribly frail. I am undeniably honest to that reality and in that honesty, I find it easier to embrace God’s promise of rest. God’s grace is sufficient for me; His power is made perfect in my weakness. Thence, I will vaunt gladly about my frailties, so that God’s power may rest in me.

In my creator’s arms…I can bloom like the most beautiful flower! In His garden I shepherded souls.

Everybody has skeletons in their closet, these are mine.

What’s yours?

Weekly Photo Challenge: Escape


meeI remember the time you asked me, ‘’ Give me the names of the four gospels?’’ I really knew who they were for I was baptized and churched at Foursquare Gospel Church. Then you asked me tons of bible verses, I knew where to find ‘em for I read daily the word of God. Words have always come easily to me. They fall from my lips as if gravity itself were pulling them from me to hoard as its own. But when I’m with you, all of that changes. It’s like being shot into space in an instant, deprived of oxygen and sound; though your splendor becomes all the more vivid for it.

BUT………

 Romans 7:25

‘Thanks be to God, who delivers me through Jesus Christ our Lord! So then, I myself in my mind am a slave to God’s law, but in my sinful nature a slave to the law of sin.”

=*=

I thank God—the Source.

through Jesus Christ—the Channel of deliverance.

So then—to sum up the whole matter.

with the mind—the mind indeed.

It’s a nice neighborhood, it is quiet, safe and well kept and I love my house. People in my neighborhood are nice, quiet and polite. I am friendly with my neighbors, but I only have one trusted friend and her name is Nicole. I moved here for more than a year now and I just love where I live! It is a quiet and peaceful middle class suburb in South Dallas.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Forward


The brightest future will always be based on a forgotten past, you can’t go on well in life until you let go of your past failures and heartaches. Life never stops pushing forward. Stay focused and never slow down with regrets. Smile, forgive, forget, and keep moving! Don’t look back with regret. Look forward with hope.

” Life without love is worthless. Love was born even before mankind was born and it still exists in all kinds of creature, including humans. Love is one trait that never diminishes as long as you give it to others and keeps on growing.’’
